After an upgrade to Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows May 2023 patch 3 or later, REST connections fail with the following error:
"WITH CONNECTION" is not allowed. To allow "WITH CONNECTION", select Allow "WITH CONNECTION" in the connector settings.
The Allow WITH CONNECTION option is not exposed in the REST Connector GUI and cannot be changed.
Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows August 2023 and later are not affected.
To resolve the issue, upgrade to August 2023.
To manually mitigate the issue in the May release branch, replace the qsdfw_qsefw_qlikview.qliksourceconfig file. Qlik is investigating a solution which does not require manual intervention.
Backup the affected file before continuing with the workaround. When taking the backup, do not keep the backed up file in the same folder. (see end notes)
This change must be done on all nodes and schedulers.
The folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvRestConnector can only contain one qliksourceconfig file with correct name: qsdfw_qsefw_qlikview.qliksourceconfigIf there are two qliksourceconfig files (even with different names, such as a backup), the first one in alphabetical order will be chosen.
Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows May 2023 Patch 3 and later
Does not affect August 2023 and later releases.
@Sonja_Bauernfeind Could you please confirm if these bug have been fixed? In the release notes of may 2023 patch6 and august 2023 release notes there is no info about the fix of QB-20735.
Thanks in advance.
Hello @Serkan I am actively in talks with our support agents on this. Will hopefully have an update today.
Hello @Serkan @Skage @EAQLIKSUPPORT
While our developers are still investigating the possibility of mitigating the issue automatically, our resolution at this point is to either:
The article was updated to reflect the advise.
All the best,Sonja
For some reason I can't get the fix with the replaced config to work with May 2023 so I tried to upgrade to August 2023+P2 and it still doesn't work.
The current qsdfw_qsefw_qlikview.qliksourceconfig is updated with the same timestamp as all other files in the folder.
I apologize now I found the new checkbox. It works as designed...
Is it ok to run Resolution 1-4 in an environment that does not use REST connection?We have a customer who is unable to confirm whether or not a REST connection is used.
Hi @afujikawa, If they have no issue it's not needed to do it, in another hand it does hurt to apply the resolution. It's up to you.Regards,Benoit
Hello @Skage Thank you for confirming!
Hi @Benoit_C ,
Thank you for your reply.Is there any negative impact of running Resolution 1-4 in an environment that does not use the REST connection?
Hi @afujikawa, You're welcome, there is no negative impact.Regards,Benoit
